Peaceful Peonies

 Today I decided to have a play with some ephemera. I was going to use the paper off it too but I got lost in the ephemera.

The Collection is called Peaceful Peonies by Couture Creations. I got this set a little while ago and I'm slowly working thru actually playing with my goodies. So I hope you get some ideas with this post.

It is a very pink set which isn't something I use too much but I challenged myself.

I started by making the tags and just trying different things to see how it worked together.

Peaceful Peonies Ephemera pack
Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink
Paper Rose Starry Night Stencil
White cardstock 6 x 13.8cm
Kraft cardstock 6.4 x 14.2cm
Pink Cardstock 6.7 x 14.5cm

Star Dust Stickles

I quite like how it turned out. I love pushing myself.
I hope you enjoyed it and you can check out the video here

Ipad Card

 My baby was turning 14 and I wanted to make a special card.

Paper Rose Awesome Words
Stampendous Mega Happy
Uniquely Creative Sweet Sentiments
Stampin Up Text Ya Later
1/2" Circle Punch
Corner Chomper
A4 Black Cardstock
White Cardstock cut to 14.4 x 20.5cm
Smaller black cardstock 12.6 x 15.5cm
White scrap cardstock
Paper 13.7 x 20.2cm
Paper 7.7 x 13.7
Hand  punch that cuts a tiny circle for applying brads etc

Using a A4 piece of black cardstock I folded this in half and rounded the corners with an 1/4" corner punch. Using the white cardstock round the corners.  Punch a small hole in the top of the white piece roughly 1cm from the top but in the middle of the white cardstock. Glue this flat onto the card base.

Glue the other black cardstock panel. 

Use a 1/4" circle punch to make your button for the bottom of your iPad.

Using different sentiment stamps and talk bubble stamps, workout what your sentiment will be. 

Ignore my grammar mistake. I originally had "Wishing you AN incredibly birthday" Obviously I decided to change the "Incredibly" as that wasn't going to work, so I changed it to 'happy' but not realising the 'AN' part. Next time, mask out the 'N', or maybe not leave it to the last minute and double check the whole sentence... Probably helpful!  

Well that is my card, I hope you enjoyed it!!

Flourish Christmas Tree

 Today I have 2 cards for you using Paper Rose Flourish Christmas Tree.


Arteza 36 watercolour (Sepia Brown)- use what you have
Paper Rose Flourish Christmas Tree 19474
Paper Rose Modern Geometric Stencil
Ranger MoonDust Stickles 
Paper Rose Christmas Sentiments 18225
Uniquely Creative Clear Sequins
Versamark Embossing Ink and Pen
Gold Embossing Powder

Our second card I am going to use similar things with the Christmas Tree die and Christmas sentiments.I will be adding the Mirror card and Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

I used a laminating pouch that I sprinkled glitter in and then sent it thru the laminator. This is not needed for the project as in the end, if I didn't tell you, you wouldn't know it was there. You would assume it was just glitter inside the shaker card.

I hope you enjoyed my cards. Thank you for stopping by.

Season's Sparkle

 Welcome Back,

Today we have a simple little card. If you can ink blend then you can do this.


Squeezed Lemonade Oxide Ink
Mermaid Lagoon Oxide Ink
Lucky Clover Oxide Ink
Stampers Anonymous Christmas Blueprint CMS135
Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Christmas TEBB72
Paper Rose Stitched Rect Australian 16576
Multi Matt Medium
Wink of Stella
Some Bling

   I work my way thru the blending colours, going back and forth until I am happy with the blend. Flick abit of water over the card and leave it there for a few seconds and pick it up with a paper towel.
I left the panel for a little time while I had dinner, however you can dry it off and test it with embossing powder before stamping with Versamark. This way you can simply brush it off without any stress. Once you know it is dry you can stamp your image and heat emboss it.
If you look at the top photo you can see my bling aren't flat or domed. I had to pick them up with my fingers to place onto the Multi Matt Medium. It's abit hit and miss , but it worked out ok. They are pretty but harder to use, so I would like to use them up.

 Die cut the panel from the 2nd largest rectangle in the Paper Rose Australian Stitched Rectangles and layer it up onto some black cardstock measuring 14.4 x 10cm.
I think that is it. You can watch the video below. 

I hope you enjoyed my card and Thank you for stopping by.

Once Upon a Christmas part 2

 Today is another 2 cards! I'm on fire!! lol

Once Upon a Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad
Once Upon a Christmas Diecut
Paper Rose Snowflakes Stencil
Paper Rose stamp set
Speckled Egg
Black Glaze Pen
Copic Multi-liner pen 0.3

Very simple card. Using the Speckled Egg distress Oxide Ink apply thru the stencil being careful not to only apply half of a snowflake. Position the Christmas bauble,where you want them and use a ruler to draw in the  strings. Randomly apply the glaze pen. The good thing about this pen is the longer you press it onto the cardstock the bigger the dot.
Card number 2.
In the diecut pack there is lots of little postage stamps. With no idea how I was going to use them I decided to use them all in one go.

Paper Rose Australian Nesting Rectangles code 17850
Once Upon a Christmas 6 x 6 paper Pad 
Once Upon a Christmas Diecut
Paper Rose Snowflakes Stencil
Stickles Gel Supanova
Taylored Expression Christmas Simple Strips
Uniquely Creative Snowy Sequins 
Using the snowflake stencil apply the supa nova glitter gel and allow it to dry.

Make yourself a frame using the second and fourth largest rectangles. Make sure you cut a piece of acetate using the larger before you apply the foam to the back of the frame!...

Adhere some of the postage stamps to the background of the shaker. This way you can always make sure you see some of them. Add some of the Uniquely Creative Snowy sequins and close the shaker up with the stenciled background.

Trim a piece of paper down to 14.4 x 10cm and adhere this to the card base with glue. 

Taylored Expressions has a few sentiment stamp sets that have a coordinating die. With one stamp of the set you get lots of sentiments to use. Next, use the matching sentiment die to cut them all out. Once cut out I place them into a little zip lock bag to keep.  I applied glue to just the edges, this limits the chance of glue oozing out.
